Fresh Take On the Holiday Mantel From Havenly

While tradition may be the cornerstone of the holidays, it’s okay to shake things up!  Our friends at Havenly, the online interior design service, shared three unique takes on holiday decor using Pottery Barn product.  Over the next few weeks we will be sharing two different vignettes that the Havenly Design Team designed exclusively for us tackling areas of the home that could use a design rethink.  Up first is the heart of the holiday home – the mantel!

“Mantel Magic”

Who says that you need to do a traditional holiday color palette?  Take a cue from this mantel that Havenly styled that showcases touches of winter greenery, brass and blue.  These simple holiday additions can easily be removed once the season is over and what’s left is a beautiful coastal vibe that reads light and airy.

To recreate a similar look, follow these quick tips to achieve your own “mantle magic”.  Start with a layer of lush greenery like our Faux Silver Dollar Garland  to set the festive mood.  Visually the garland creates a picture ready background to nestle in ornaments, art objects and other accessories.

The next step according to Havenly is to add in sculptural objects that can bring a sense of height, drama and scale.  This was achieved by mixing in candlesticks of varying heights and vases to hold faux florals & botanicals.  What we especially love about this styling is that while being cheerful, it is not holiday specific.

Now time to bring in the holiday cheer with knitembellished and metallic stockings – no need to go over the top!
